ACWA: No Statewide Tax on Water (Video)

In response to a bill that would impose the first-ever statewide tax on Californians’ water, the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) released the below video.

Background: The bill, SB 623 by Sen. Bill Monning (D-Carmel), addresses the very serious problem of ensuring safe drinking water for disadvantaged communities.  ACWA’s Board of Directors and members have made it a high priority to support bond funds and other drinking water funding to address this serious social and public health issue, but a new tax on water is not the right approachACWA is actively opposing this bill.
